    Comparison between USA and China, the two real superpowers is as follows:-

    1. China 3rd largest country in terms of area, USA is 4th largest.

    2. China largest in terms of population, USA 3rd largest (if you consider India as one country)

    3. China 2nd largest economy with 5 tn $, USA largest with 15 tn $ (somebody has answered China as 1.30 tn $. I don't know from where these people get these figures)

    4. China's national language Mandarin is spoken by the most no. of people (1200 million), while USA's one of the two national languages, Spanish (do remember that USA has more Spanish speakers than Spain) is 3rd most spoken after Mandarin and Hindi (600 million), and another national language US English (240 million) is 7th most spoken after Mandarin, Hindi, Spanish (450 million), Russian (300 million), Arabic (280 million), and Bengali (255 million).

    5. China has longest super high speed rail lines, while USA lags far behind.

    6. China has longest road n/w, USA has 2nd longest.

    7. China is the bigget buyer of consumer electronics, cars, mobile phones etc, while USA is second to China.

    8. China dominates the East and USA dominates North America (except Cuba). (don't get fooled, America has no special status in Europe except for its 51st state UK and its permanent colony India)

    9. China was the 3rd country to send man in space, but USA too was not 1st but 2nd. 1st was Soviet Union/Russia.

    10. China has most no. of internet users, USA is again lagging.

    11. China has the biggest, longest and tallest of everything in the world like longest bridge, longest rail line, largest dam, 3rd tallest building etc, while USA lags on almost all these parameters.

    12. China has two major financial centers HK and Shanghai, while in this too USA lags behind with just one NYC.

    13. China has the world's biggest standing military, and USA is again 2nd to China.

    14. Mexico a 3rd world country lies to south of USA, and India a 3rd world country lies to isouth of China.

    14. And finally USA is ruling India and in future it'll be our mighty neighbor. (at least this can be sure looking into the way our congress govt. is dealing with the superpower in neighborhood)

    In short China is future and USA is present (and that present will soon be over).

    So Indians be prepared to learn Mandarin because now you Indians will be answering the queries of Chinese customers.

    One answer says USA is not expansionist. Then please read History of America article on wikipedia.

    The USA is #1 in military spending and China is #2.

    The USA spends 10 times more in military than China.

    The USA spends $623 billion annually in military, while China spends $65 billion.

    That's the only field the USA is ahead of China.

    Very difficult to compare China a totalitarian Country and a democracy like USA. China is equal or better than US in many field. China is emerging fast as an upcoming Super Economic Power.

    China's got all the jobs and we have none! Unemployment just went UP again! I am wondering if all these American companies who are setting up shop in different countries are actually PAYING taxes! WE have to pay the taxes if WE buy any of their crap! If Obama wants to do something for this country, is to get these companies to come back to the States to help OUR economy!! Why are WE keeping these other countries in business instead of our own!?

    there will be a conflict coming sooner or later and it would be a conflict for aspects. China will lose. that's no longer approximately numbers, because of the fact the subsequent conflict often is the final conflict. the u . s . a . will strike first and it would be one hundred% nuclear and it won't be counted how a lot of human beings are left status, because of the fact the intial strike against China will wipe out a minimum of a million/third of their inhabitants and that they are going to be no longer able to retaliate, yet their allies will. important US cities would be crippled and our management will flow underground. whilst the airborne dirt and mud settles, the international, the great international would be a barren region.
